use your talents


God has given gifts to each of us……… 1Peter 4:10
Your work is important to God. Your job might use as much as 40 hours in a week, so it should represent Him. God has given gifts to each of you… Manage them well… then God will be given the glory. We’ve each been given talents for the purpose of honouring God in this world. Undiscovered, un developed gifts dishonor Him., so do misused ones. God has gifted you to do something in a way nobody else can. By tapping into your unique abilities and using them to promote His kingdom, you’re fulfilling His will in the truest sense. Paul say’s … everything comes from him… and is intended for his glory…’ (Rom 11:36) The breathe we breathe, the blood that courses through our veins, the grey matter between our ears are all God’s investment in us, and He expects a return. Max Lucado writes, “we exist to exhibit God, to display his glory. We serve as convases for his brush strokes, paper s for his pen, soil for his seeds, and glimpse of his image… He un-commons the common by turning kitchen sinks into shrimes, cafes into convents, and nine-to-five work days into spiritual adventures… When you magnify your maker with your strengths…. Your days go suddenly sweet.’ So, be like the great new England preacher Jonathan Edwards, who lived by two resolution: * Resolved first: that all men should live for the glory of God. *Resolved second: that whether others do or not, I will.”
